Football Love Actually ’22

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 never thought love could feel this way
never thought I’d hear it or ever see the day
sometimes the words aren’t deep enough to say
it’s just football love actually

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 all of that stuff you just love to put me through
all of those last-minute crazy things you do
all of that torment that makes me feel blue
when nothing else matters actually

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 even in the moment when time stands still
even in that second when the love finds the will
great expectations that never fit the bill
in football love actually

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 hooked like a box-set you’re watching on stream
rom com or thriller when you’re sucked into a dream
taken as a child and forever they’re your team
but that’s the way it happens – actually

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 sometimes you wonder if this is just a game
screaming out loud will it always be the same
or someday some way will everything change
but football love doesn’t actually

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 and one day it’s over – when you let go
staring at a screen in a bar all alone
or standing on a terrace when whadda you know
you finally crack it actually

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 all of those years in the pleasure and the pain
coasting in the sunshine then falling in the rain
but you always knew that the time’d come again
when you’d finally win the league ..actually.
